republican senator john mccain says he and other senators plan to announce the key principles of their plan a little later this week. >> is there is a new, i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more important on the republican side of the aisle that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. >> reporter: now, senator mccain said on abc news "this week" that that plan would include a way for undocumented immigrants to gain a way to citizenship. when asked how do you convince republicans of that he pointed to the last election, miguel, where republican mitt romney got just 26% of the latino vote, 71% backed president obama. and those are numbers that stand out to the gop. >> oh, the numbers, yes, i'm sure they do no mystery why the president is in nevada, certainly want to paint that state blue as well what is your sense of it, can -- will congress come together in the math has changed enor mousily on immigration politics. ly be able to get his reforms through congress? >> reporter: we are hearing more optimism from both sides of congress today on the

[ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another network. >> john: her people are calling mr. zucker all weekend. >> she did make a comment on her interview with breitbart where she said we shouldn't just be preaching to the choir. conservatives need to reach out. which is funny because she did it on breitbart. she's setting herself up to reach out to a larger audience without getting chastised for it. >> john: i do think you're right. but also you know, when some
, mitt romney was in washington, d.c. today, he was at a luncheon with some friends. we saw john mccain was at the luncheon. we know his vice presidential running mate paul ryan also attended the luncheon. he's certainly kept a low profile since the election. but i tell you, i spoke to a top aide, erin, and the top aide told me that mitt romney might not be very public right now, but expect him to certainly come out in the future. they don't know exactly when. mitt romney is going to be -- remain political. he will try to remain relevant in the republican party. but he also knows that he's no longer the did it ewe lar head of the republican party. there's a new generation for that. mitt romney, out of sight, out of mind, but i think we'll see him come back. >> a new generation that's very diverse. we'll see if they can possibly succeed at getting their voting electorate to become as diverse as some of their leadership seems to be. thanks very much, mark preston. >>> anti-abortion activists flocked to washington today for the annual march for life, calling for new laws to outlaw abortion
and john mccain of arizona were two of the senators. here is what they said today. >> other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> what's going on now is unacceptable. in real what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> here is what the plan includes. the creation of what the sthors call a tough but fair path to stip. strengthening border security with new tools. establishing an effective employment vir fication system to prevent employers from hiring illegal workers. most will be given a provisional status. they would have to go to the back of the line to get their green card. will it wo
as the new found religion, i've not given them props. john mccain before he was part of the d.r.e.a.m. act, he was part of it. timing is everything. now after they got their butt kicked they want go ahead and follow through what they started years and years ago. unfortunately the latino immigration is part of it. if you want to be an american, you're part of the game. >> listen to bobby are jindal. he's talking to his fellow republicans. >> we must not be part of the party who protects the well off so they can keep their toys. we've got stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults. >> he's not the only one giving that sentiment. paul ryan gave a similar sentiment this morning on "meet the press." ana, is this what your party needs? tough love? >> yes. we need to not sugarcoat it, we need to learn the lessons of the last election. i think governor jindal is right. i think paul ryan is right. i was at the republican retreat ten days ago at the house members and i can tell you we heard a lot of this. there is an acknowledgement within t
page of the wall street journal. "immigration debate gears up her." and here's john mccain talking about this proposal on abc. [video clip] >> i will give you some straight talk. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically in the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second, we cannot go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows under an illegal status. we cannot forever have children who were born here, or brought here by their parents when there were small children and live in the shadows as well. so i think the time is right. host: that was senator john mccain. president obama and will be in las vegas on tuesday to lay out his vision on immigration. at c-span.org for all of our coverage of that event and when we finalize coverage details. the enormous object of the role of the united states on a world stage, we will go to kirby from quincy, illinois, on the democratic line. caller: thank you. i have been listening to some of these people calling in and criticizing mrs. clin
, congress has refused requests for more money and cut the state department budget. senator john mccain, a critic of the administration's response to the attacks, said clinton's answers were unsatisfactory. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. i hope that they will get them. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda splinter groups in nearby mali and the recent terrorist attack in algeria. she warned the events are linked. instability in north africa has opened a pandora's box of threats against the united states. >> pelley: margaret, thank you. one man who will be called in to deal with those threats is general john allen, and we learned today that president obama will resubmit allen's nomination as commander of nato forces in europe. the pentagon investigated general allen for sending potentially inappropriate e- mails to a florida woman linked to the david petraeus scandal, but yesterday allen was cleared of wrongdoing. the battle over the debt ceilin
. senator john mccain said i would have liked to have seen some outreej. john thune of dd dd agreed. he said the speech was 30,000-foot stuff and he wasn't doing the outreach stuff he needs to do if he wants to get thinged accomplished in a second term. susan collins said i hoped it would have been a little less partisan at times. after the swearing in ceremonies came the parties. let's say d.c. was rocking into the wee hours. the obamas not only looked amazing, it seemed like they were having a great time. taking it all in. the number of parties were scaled back from the ten four years ago. two last night. there was no shortage of big stars, big moments. brianna keilar has more. >> ladies and gentlemen, my better half and my dance partner, michelle obama. >> reporter: at the commander in chief's ball, jennifer hudson sang "let's stay together" as the first couple danced their first dance of nut term. mrs. obama revealing she chose jason wu yet again to design her inaugural gown. next they appeared at the inaugural ball where 30,000 people were expected to attend. this inaugural ball falls o
. we're looking for reaction, a lot of eyes talking to tough-talking war hero senator john mccain, who said allowing women in combat units is the right thing to do. for women like these, in boot camp at parris island, the change will open up more than 200,000 jobs that had only been available to mental. no changes will be made in toughness or strength standards for women. >> if they can meet the qualifications for the job, then they should have the right to serve. >> reporter: defense secretary leone panetta pointed out 150 women have been killed in combat, serving in iraq and afghanistan with men. >> they're fighting and dying together. and the time has come for our policies to recognize that reality. >> reporter: women can move immediately to medium-sized combat brigades as pilots, medics and the like. small front line combat platoons will not be open to women, maybe for years until commanders can propose specific units that might remain men only, like the navy s.e.a.l.s or delta force commandos. retired lieutenant general jerry boykin says that all front line units ought to remain c
introducing you and it brought me back to my first days in the senate when you and john mccain, vietnam veterans, workled together in a noble task to establish normal relations with vietnam which continue to this day and to deal with the controversial, contentious issue of p.o.w.'s and m.i.a.'s. i came here as a brand new senator, on behalf of pete peterson, the congressman from florida, who had been named first ambassador to vietnam by president clinton, pete peterson himself a five-year prisoner of war as an air force pilot and you two did an extraordinary job moving him forward and giving him the chance to serve. thank you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism
. i mean, we'll see if they're willing to go that direction. if mitt romney in many ways and john mccain in many ways was too moderate for some people during that campaign, will they now change course and swing toward the middle? >> you know, mika, sarah palin represented, as willie said, really she represented republican resentment. now, so did ronald reagan. >> right. >> but ronald reagan knew how to follow through on that. i always, when i saw those "w" stickers especially in the northeast back in 2004, i died laughing and i love it had because a "w" sticker on the back of your car in the northeast was like sticking your middle finger up to elites. east coast -- trust me, as a republican, i can tell you. i would look at them, and i would die laughing. it was just great. and it was that sort of republican resentment. but you know what? he knew how to close the deal. bush knew how to close the deal. reagan knew how to close the deal. republican resent -- it's just like they say in washington if you're paranoid, you know, what is the saying? just because you're paranoid doesn't mean ever
did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what changed you ask. two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important but not urgent like climate change fall down the scale. the second change, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but bear with me, we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, might it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissions, co2?
's myanmar speech and john mccain snuck in a couple of winks during george w. bush's state of the union in 2007. a sleepless night is getting more common. a full 30% of civilian workers get less than six hours of sleep, says the cdc. the night shift is the worst. for instance, 70% of night shift workers and transportation and warehousing are sleep deprived. the best sleep? the finance industry along with educators at 27%. they don't take their laptops and phones to bed. the glow can simulate daylight and simulate sleep. with the 24-hour global economy it's tough to get unplugged. so businesses like pod time are seeing orders rise for stacked sleeping pods, stereos that help you get in the mood and racks for bedtime reading torl put away your laptop as well. insomniac classes are on the increase as well. late night yoga and meditation and they say bring your pajamas. and sleeping pill ads are everywhere. americans are doing just about anything and anywhere to grab some zs. and in fact, chris, you are probably wondering where i am right now. >> i wasn't actually, but -- >> where are you?
. >> she wears the pants in that family. [ mocking laughter ] >> stephanie: john mccain said hilary got away with ducking questions because of the warm media. >> stephanie: oh absolutely. hardly reported anything. allen west. why? really? please go away now. i'm guessing he has a thought or two about chicks in the military. >> he does. >> that's where our focus should be right now to decline the middle east frustration. and i will to tell you -- if this be the case then why do we have separate hockey leagues? you know women should be out there playing ice hockey with the guys. i can't shoot a three-pointer, but there are ladies that can certainly take me to the hoop. joe, maybe they should be competing with kobe bryant. >> stephanie: don't you hate people that make stupid analogies. obviously if -- as leon panetta said if they can't pass the test. they won't be in that job. he said it could lead to the demise of the military. he facebooked about it. he said gi jane was a movie. i thought demi moore was spectacular so i was thinking -- [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: how many
questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule and three people named to the labor relations board were appointed unconstitutionally. he used his recess po

, john mccain, thanks. we've been down this road before but i feel good about our chances this time. chuck thank you for your leadership on this and bob and lindsay and i understand that you've been the force blind this. he's the glue, you're the force and it's worked. we've come to this moment. and here we are facing the issue of immigration. nothing new in america. this inflammation has been debating the issue of immigration since the first group got off the boot and wanted to know why the second boat was coming. but it is critical to remember that those immigrants whose d.n.a. we carry had smpping special in their make up to get up and move to come to this nation for a great opportunity they couldn't nind another place. that's part of what we are today. and secondly it says something about our nation about how many people want to come here in this opportunity for an expanding economy. they want to be here in america. the third spoint important, our immigration system is broken and has been broken for a long time. 16 years ago when i was elected to the senate, one of the first pho

years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound
disagree with the underlining facts that have had people reach those conclusions. john mccain four years ago only got 31%. if you look at george bush, he received, i think 40%, even though immigration wasn't really on the agenda. it shows that it is somewhat condescending that hispanics are single voters about immigration just because they are immigration. most hispanics like most americans are focused on what leaders going to do for them and the economy and securing their streets and securing their place in the world. that shows in the exit polls, hispanic voters are not single-issue voters. as a republican party we can probably do better by being more welcoming in our rhetoric at times and there is a lot of policies that recognize that we are, not just a nation of immigrants, but a nation of laws. expediting illegal immigration. i have an interpreder the from afghanistan who tries to get a visa but he fails to get a visa because there is not enough visas. he could come here easily lylely but he wants to do the right thing to be a productive citizen. same thing with immigrants that are
. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from louisiana, he said that president obama had done little to enforce immigration laws. i think you will find for th
the statement. >> senator john mccain there. senator feinstein behind him. >> mitch mcconnell was the one that famously said we immediate to make this a one-term president. there he is there at coffee this morning. >> he has since said that was a political effort and once that didn't come to pass he's completely reconciled to the fact he has to work with him and get business done. i could add, anderson, the president said because he's now re-elected he has been telling his aides that this is an opportunity almost to experience his inauguration important the first time. >> al franken on the right. >> because at first -- in the original inauguration, he was so focused on the financial crisis, economic crisis, there was a national security threat on the day of the inauguration, and -- they were consumed by the crises at the moment. they almost couldn't concentrate on what was happening that day. >> 20 years ago, bill clinton was leaving right at this moment, his speech writers were still with him. taylor got in the limousine and writing the speech over to the white house. >> wow. >> didn't e
to that place. >> it has been on a downside through mccain and romney. probably believed the first option is something on immigration, in this congress. john, to you on jindal specifically. is he just positioning himself for 2016 with this type of rhetoric? >> yes. >> simple answer. >> that's the simple true answer. i mean, look, part of what is disingenuous about the speech, he spends a lot of time running down washington, saying -- running down the federal dwo government. he doesn't hate the federal government. he wants to run the federal government. sometimes in politics, the best way to do that is to run against the federal government. that's the honest truth. >> john avlon, margaret hoover, thank you very much. >> thanks, victor. >>> president obama may be facing a high stakes supreme court battle because a federal appeals court unanimously ruled today that president obama's recess appointments to a federal agency are unconstitutional. the president named three people to the national labor relations board during congress' winter holiday break a year ago. they were former deputy labor
